Bocada Enhances Enterprise 4 for Scalability and Compliance Support

September 28, 2006; 03:16 AM
Bocada, Inc., the leading provider of data protection management software, today announced enhancements to Bocada Enterprise 4 that make it easier for multiple users across large scale organizations to gain critical insight into performance against data management and compliance policies. Enhancements using standards-based Java technology enable the Bocada Enterprise Report Viewer to provide straightforward, secure access to reports via the web, making role-based information delivery to unique users across the corporation a reality. New self-monitoring capabilities ensure customers can prove continuous adherence to regulatory compliance mandates. Bocada will be demonstrating Enterprise 4.0 and highlighting these new features at the Storage Decisions Fall conference at the Hilton New York in booth 112 from September 27-29th.

"These new features demonstrate the company's continuing commitment to helping our customers overcome their specific data protection management challenges," said Nancy Hurley, vice president of marketing for Bocada. "Our constant interaction with our customers, which include nearly 50 percent of the Fortune 50, the world's largest managed services providers, and multiple government agencies, has provided Bocada with deep insight into their evolving data management needs, which continue to be in the area of greater flexibility and customization of information, and improved management of resources."

Bocada Enterprise 4 automates the collection, storage and delivery of information necessary to ensure data protection services meet recovery and compliance requirements at the lowest possible cost. Based upon the company's patented agent-less, multi-vendor technology, Bocada Enterprise 4 improves the effectiveness of all leading data protection applications and platforms, including those from IBM, Symantec, EMC, HP, CA, and Sun StorageTek, and deploys quickly and seamlessly into massive, distributed data protection environments.

Scaleable, Secure Web Reporting

Following recent enhancements that enable data collection across thousands of backup servers and tens of thousands of clients, the latest version vastly increases the scalable delivery of information to end users via a Java-based Web Reporting solution, enabling hundreds of users to query the data collection repository simultaneously. The new reporting also allows business users to easily generate, refresh, edit and manage their own reports via the web. Advanced security features ensure that reports are viewed only by those with the appropriate permission, whether internal users or customers.

Enhanced Features for Compliance Reporting

The challenge in most regulated organizations is not complying with the regulations; it is proving a history of complying or making a best effort to comply with them. New self-monitoring and alerting features in the latest version ensure that audit trails required for regulatory mandates are continuous and available by alerting IT staff when network outages or configuration changes interfere with updates to the system. Automated notification improves efficiency, reduces troubleshooting cycle time, and reduces the risk of non-compliance. In addition, notifications can be integrated into management frameworks including IBM Tivoli Event Center, HP OpenView, and others. By ensuring the system is always tracking data management activities, Bocada helps organizations prove they are in compliance with SOX, Basel II, HIPPA, SEC and FRCP regulations. In a separate announcement released today, Bocada introduced advanced reporting functions for compliance with the impending Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) Amendments.

Pricing and Availability

Bocada Enterprise 4 is currently available via subscription starting at $7,500, excluding implementation and training. For specific pricing information, contact Bocada sales at [email protected] or at (425) 818-4400.
